The Syrah vines in the Potrero Vineyard receive only natural rainfall for moisture, and this lack of water means smaller crop yields, fewer clusters per-vine, and berries that are packed with concentrated sugars and acid. The flavors are powerful and intense. Dark, classic Syrah notes of lavender, blackberries and spiced oak and smoke greet you first, followed by coffee and black pepper. The finish is spiced fruit and berries, with a savory black olive note. Limited Production of 180 cases.
The wine greets you with abundant aromatic notes of ripe blueberries, hints of savory herbs and roasted meats. The texture can best be described as thick satin. Luscious, rich berry flavors with a perfect whisper of vanilla and caramel barrel notes follow. The finish is long, lingering, and complete. Limited Production of 180 cases.
